Pet of the Week 

Bendito…at first I thought, ‘What kind of funny name did they give me?’ When I found out it means “blessed” in Spanish, I decided it was a perfect fit, since I’m definitely fortunate to have ended up here. Everyone is so nice to me and I have lots of good food to eat and even some pals to play with! As nice as it is here, I’m hoping that there’s a family out there meant just for me. I’m only five months old and I have lots of energy so hopefully I can find someone who can keep up with my energy level. Read more about me here.
